Jesus, I thought someone was being killed on the forum with that title posted!!

Chill and set a key on the attribute for the glow at the start and end of timeline where you want it to begin and end.

Easy!

@ George - I don't think I even bothered to install it again, the original reason was to talk to a special someone who I now see everyday sooo .. :x


@ Raphael - Nah, I wouldn't say I gave up, I've discovered Maya scripting and I'm sooooo into it right now lol oooh oooh you'll see ^^.

And this thread isn't about me lol >.>
